Would you ever sell one of your BJDs?
That’s an easy one. Yes, I would – in fact I’ve already done so. If I don’t enjoy the doll, I see no reason to keep it – even if it was my first BJD (a PukiPuki). I have to really love to photograph my dolls or at least love thinking about them (these days I don’t have the time to enjoy them much, but I do spend a lot of time thinking about them) to justify the cost of them. When I don’t enjoy a doll, I don’t really see why I should keep it around. I don’t bond heavily if I don’t like photographing, so most dolls I haven’t really missed. The only doll I actually really miss is one of my Pullips (a Pullip Papin), who obviously is not a BJD… Sometimes I actually think about getting another Pullip, because they are so beautiful. I think it’s just a bit of nostalgia when seeing other people’s really pampered Pullips, but I sort of envy those who do really great things with them.
But as for BJDs, I need to feel really good about them. Currently I don’t feel so good about Cassie’s current shell (Momocolor Lucy) and Siria (Lati Yellow Laches), so I’m trying to sell them, but the market isn’t too good…
So, would you sell one of your dolls, or do you love them too much? Have you maybe already sold some?
